Our Big Meetings: These bi-weekly meetings are for the entire group and are a great place to get involved. The purpose of these is to keep all of our volunteers informed about current events, as well as sign up for new fundraisers and activities. To attend one of these meetings, just show up in CBB 225 on Tuesdays at 9:00pm.

Our Construction Dates: A group of volunteers works on an actual construction site here in the Cedar Valley. The team usually meets in the morning and is then led to the site by our construction coordinator, Margaret.

Collegiate Challenge: Collegiate Challenge is an alternative Spring Break program coordinated with chapters all over the country. Basically the event is open to college chapters, and for the week of their spring break, they get to spend that time working with a chapter in a region of their choice. For example, in spring of 2005, our chapter sent several students to Colorado. Students began construction on a home with only the outside walls up. At the end of the week, the group had completed, with the help and supervision of the local chapter, the roof, walls, insulation, windows, and porch. It was quite an accomplishment. The location of Collegiate Challenge changes every year and is somewhat up to the individuals going. This year instead of going on Collegiate Challenge we will have other chapters from around the U.S. come to Cedar Falls, and help us with our house.
